Care & Support

Care & Support

Life often confronts you with changing events that are often out of your control. This is especially true for people who may need care and support from one day to the next. No one is immune to the need for care, which can arise unexpectedly - whether due to illness, very old age or an accident.

In the Waldeck-Frankenberg district, there are a variety of assistance options that offer help and support in such a case. From advice to the mediation of concrete offers to legal care options, the Waldeck-Frankenberg district offers appropriate advice and assistance so that those affected and their relatives can be supported in the best possible way in this situation, which is often stressful.
